Gao Lab

Welcome to Gao Lab

Our lab innovates nanotechnology to image and perturb tumor biology and immunology with the ultimate goal to advance cancer care. Our pH nanosensor has received FDA Breakthrough Therapy Designation for precision cancer surgery. A STING-activating nanoparticle has entered first-in-human trials in patients with advanced solid tumors.
